if you don't want to see the band play new songs don't go to the gig

they are promoting a sense of purpose, not the jester race VII

i like tjr/whoracle a lot too but seriously

I was saying the same thing when I saw them twice in 06. But thats because I thought the Come Clarity, STYE, and Reroute were catchy and fun. I dont like the new stuff as much.

They took off My Sweet Shadow and Only for the Weak? Yet almost the whole of the new album is on there? Those are two of their biggest songs, usually their encores.

I just wanna see the band play stuff. I like the older stuff more but as long as there are some oldies to which i can fuck myself up it's all good, you know?

No Only for the Weak is lame though I agree, but they've played that song to death. I can imagine they are bored as hell playing that.

edit: youtube informs me they played only for the weak in cologne

That happens?
and the singing dies down for just a second, right? Long enough for my dad to go "This is how they used to transport the Jews!"

Well, They seem to be loving the money. If you were in a band would you play some songs that they told you to for some extra money? I would.
Never enough shows

For a band to promote their new album is all fine and good, but, as others have said, to completely ignore their amazing early material is just a travesty. In Flames is one of my favorite bands and my first metal band after Metallica and Maiden, so it really does suck to see them play sets like this.

found a review from london. said that they played my sweet shadow and colony at that show. still nothing off whoracle. here are some quotes from the review that i found pretty pathetic... "Anders was asking people to sing along to the Pinball Map chorus and it was shockingly dead, I was the only person around my area who even knew the words to the chorus, and I heard a guy behind me say "is this from The Jester Race?" "The loud squeels from girls (and maybe some emo boys) when Take This Life and Come Clarity came on, in comparison to the silence for Dead God in me or Insipid 2000, was sickening." "The songs from Colony and Clayman got very little reaction from everybody except me, and the songs from TJR.... well, they might as well have been playing hip hop."

the whole review is at the same link where i got the setlist, just down the thread a bit.
